id choose naruga S armor. i used it all the way to G rank and always saved my ass. although i cant really use the evade skill, the roll is just enough for me to evade most of the monsters' attacks since you can roll a little farther. with decent defense and defensive maneuvers +1, you cant go wrong with this armor. looks cool too.. by then i built my way up to the G rank and crafted the next armor, the naruga x armor and with it, came along all the armors i could get my hands onto.
